Netflix Original.... what?
10 April 2020 | by SnootzSee all my reviews

Sol Levante is advertised as 4 minutes 32 seconds long... 3 minutes of which is animation and 1 1/2 minutes of credits. Story line is non-existent. There is no plot, climax or resolution. The animation is okay but no more exceptional than anything else seen these days. It most resembles a graphics class project than anything else. It might be considered a trailer for a film, but it isn't.

As an art film it's barely acceptable. As anything else it's a waste of time. I give it 3 stars because 1 & 2 stars I reserve for bad films... and this isn't a "bad" film. It's just unimpressive and without evident purpose. Being a "Netflix Original" I'm sure it will have a lot of viewers so someone is going to cash out. But again, what is Netflix thinking? This belongs more on YouTube film project lists than Netflix.

On the other hand it IS only three minutes long and at least qualifies as eye-candy. So I'm glad it didn't take 90 minutes to say nothing. ; )
